Storyline

Destined to be among the great virtuosos of jazz, Thomas Chapin, an alto sax and flute master, was nearing the pinnacle of his meteoric rise when leukemia took him at the age of 40 in 1998. Though fame and world recognition have eluded him despite the mark he left on jazz n the '80s and '90s, his passionate life and incandescent music are unforgettable to fans who knew him and musicians who played with him. And today, his music is inspiring a new generation of artists and musicians who have discovered him. The new documentary THOMAS CHAPIN, NIGHT BIRD SONG draws an intimate portrait of this musical explorer who pushed and transcended the boundaries of jazz and dissolved the distinctions between sound and music. Because of this film, he will no longer be only a footnote in jazz. His indelible mark will be known.
